Challenge

Benoy were tasked with designing an exciting new leisure destination on Riyadh’s Golden Strip which would bring together the older parts of the city with the new. 

Solution

The project’s name, inspired by the diverse array of gemstones, embodies the visual and architectural representation of gemstones in its various zones.

Benoy’s design concept centres around creating an attractive walkable district and neighbourhood, where people would be able to enjoy a variety of culture and leisure activities.

Four key districts reflect the different experiences of Riyadh – Luxury, Urban, Local & Authentic, and Everyday. Within each district, visitors can experience a uniquely Riyadh approach to shopping, dining and leisure, with multi-levelled event spaces and up-and-coming entertainment offers.

Result

The new scheme will position Riyadh as a 24-hour destination to live, work, and shop. It includes 50,000 square meters of state-of-the-art commercial office spaces and a 20,000 square meter entertainment city aimed at supporting Riyadh’s thriving tourism and entertainment industry. 

In addition to its commercial spaces, the Konoz” project features 15,000 square meters of green areas, parking for 5,500 vehicles, a 120,000 square meter commercial center, a world-class a luxury hotel with 250 rooms, 120 serviced residential apartments, and an additional 135,000 square meter residential apartment complex which includes 700 apartments.

It will also align with the newly developed Riyadh Metro System as a part of wider transport-oriented development.
